Of course I do. When I'm on the bike you cannot tell I'm a girl at all.

We are no doubt acting like an air filter to all the rest of traffics exhaust and every time we stop in traffic our own exhaust just surrounds us and, we no doubt create a negative pressure behind us when moving that can suck the exhaust toward our back, for the most part we just get used to smelling and don't even care because we're having fun.

I really don't think we are going to solve this problem. Just my two pennies.
+1 It's not a horrible smell, anyway... and maybe Mala is on to something.

Sure I am. Even if we come away with no conclusive evidence about exhaust stink from the Swap-n-Sniff-Meet-n-Greet, at least we can all go home smellin' like hot wings or something.

Since we are on the topic of smell, and not to change the subject but I have to ask - has any one used header wrap, I put it on my 07 when I did the exhaust, Ive put about 150 miles on the bike since. Does the burning type smell ever go away, when I stop at a light that stinks...
